Since its been a while - I thought this would make a good challenge opportunity:



And I intentionally put it in Scratchbuilding so other in all scales could play along.

Rules:

  • The Challenge starts next Friday 11 April 2014 and runs for 30 days.
  •   Entrants to the challenge shall post their intention to compete in THIS thread by that time.
  • Entrants may be in any scale, and imaginative approaches are always welcome.
  • All entrants must post regular updates of their work.  Posts MAY be conducted in Weekend Update IF they reference this thread.

So, who's in?

Larger would be good, but even more useful would be one of the other side...

Sorry that is a many years old photo I put at Railimages, no other photos. It was painted grey that last time I was there. The original tank says UTLX.

and it also seems to have a number of 17766?
Anyone have an equipment register that can track it down?

Well I'm thinking an 8000 gallon car something like the Intermountain car. They have done thirty different numbers so far and am wondering if this number could have been done? Anyone have a list of the cars they have done so far? Also found this shot on line of a close cousin to it.
